    Holy bichette!…2 hits. Can’t recall the last time that happened

  2. nycsportzfan says:

    Cave was a good late guy we got that had upside, right? What were his strengths again?

  3. CS Yankee says:

    Which is the bigger surprise;
    1) Cave being a RHP?
    2) Dbich having two hits in a single game?
    3) JR Murph’ going 0-for-5?

  4. Robinson Tilapia says:

    Oh, Melky the younger, you fucking slay me. After all this, you’re probably a fifth outfielder.

    Slade coming around?

  5. YankeeGrunt says:

    As bad as Bichette has been, he’d be 3rd on the Yanks in RBIs. Weird.

  6. Robert says:

    Good to see Adams and Marchall make there ML debuts tonite.Cant believe last year I saw them in Trenton!!
    Go get them guys…..

  7. Baseballnation says:

    And that line officially puts Melky Mesa over the 40% K rate…Eeek
    On the other hand the artist formerly known as John Murphy just keeps on hitting. Scranton will be calling soon enough.

  8. Bob Buttons says:

    *to the tune of Oh Danny Boy*

    Oh Johnny boy, Scranton, Scranton’s calling
    For your hot bat, else we start Bobby Dub.
    Cervie’s down, and all our catchers failing
    Come on, we need a guy up there.

  9. JonS says:

    Neil can’t replace Francisco soon enough.

  10. Jorge Brosada says:

    DBJ with an XBH??!

  11. Richard Leo says:

    Reymond Nunez hit another HR,5HR in last 10 games.

  12. will says:

    Charlie Short : http://www.barry.edu/current-s.....l?id=21305

    Just 23 if he continues to dominate he might move fast

  13. Conor Gallogly says:

    I’m embarrassed to say I advocated having Mesa on the teams instead of Francisco. And that’s despite the fact that Francisco has sucked.
